Among the youngest telecom companies in Pakistan, Zong has been on an upward trajectory since it was established in 2008. It also has successfully cultivated a secure position in the telecommunications industry in Pakistan and continues to experience positive growth. Therefore, it has been able to secure a stable consumer base thanks to the various packages it offers. These packages are also affordable and accommodate the needs of different types of customers. Whether you are a prepaid or postpaid customer is irrelevant as it provides packages for both.
Zong’s internet packages are especially impressive as it was among the first ones to offer 4G internet for mobile users in Pakistan. As it proved this was possible, other telecom companies followed suit in order to remain competitive in the field. Let’s now go over the details of the packages offered by Zong.
For Postpaid Customers
Postpaid customers are required to pay a monthly bill in order to continue using the service. In terms of internet packages, there are only a few as compared to the options given to prepaid customers.
However, the benefit is that if you use internet often, you will get to enjoy the package till the next bill arrives. This is because you will be charged for the package on the next bill you receive. As a result of this, all packages available to postpaid customers are monthly, and there are no options for daily or weekly bundles.
